Speaking at the event, CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “I am happy to launch Jio’s True 5G services in Guwahati. I believe True 5G has the power to democratize the health infrastructure across the varied geography of Assam. The health solution demonstrated today, 'Clinic in the bag' can aid grass root health workers and Asha workers. It has a simple design and can wirelessly connect to a suite of medical devices over 5G. Healthcare workers with the help of specialist Doctors can diagnose and treat patients in even the most remote locations of Assam.”
The chief minister further said, “My government is fully committed to aiding the speedy roll-out of 5G services in Assam.
